Drill Press Tables - What is Your Preference and Why?

  • Most drill presses have the standard smaller table with center hole and X slots to allow a drill press vise to be moved around and secured on the table. I notice the large production tables are typically solid - with no means for securing a vise, but having a gutter system around the perimeter for cutting oil or chips.

    How do you secure your work on a production table? I would think you would need to position your work on a piece of wood, so you don't drill into the table.

    Of the two tables, which do you prefer and why?

    Thanks for your comments!
